"You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them."
The Next Chapter's response to Covid-19 pandemic.
On March 9, 2020, The Next Chapter introduced TeleHealth as a means to provide immediate and continuous services and support to the clients we serve. The following services have been suspended including:
“Making Sense of Bipolar” group Tuesdays 9:30 -11am
“Trauma and Connections” group Tuesdays 5-7pm
Outpatient Substance Abuse group Thursdays 1-3pm
We have continued to monitor the public health crisis in Sedgwick County, as well as nationwide, by following up-to-date information as announced by Governor Kelly in her daily briefings, through Sedgwick County’s website, and from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website.
This factual information coupled with the guidance of other mental health service providers in our county and state will be used in making ongoing decisions as to when The Next Chapter will return to “in-person” services.
In response to Kansas Governor Kelly’s plan to reopen the state, The Next Chapter will continue providing safe and structured services using TeleHealth. Continuous assessment of the data and trends in the pandemic will guide us in future decisions.
We are projecting to have updated this decision on or before June 1, 2020.
